Live/oral typhoid vacc.I got sick with the flu yesterday.Need to take 4th & final pill today.Does being sick interfere w/ vaccine's effectiveness?
Also known as influenza vaccines, flu shots are given out once a year to protect against the flu. The flu shot stimulates the immune system to build antibodies to three or four strains of flu viruses in the hopes that it will offer protection from the current strains present in the community. Each year the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) monitors the strains of Influenza globally and incorporates the appropriate antigens in the new vaccine. For best protection the vaccine ...Read more
Can rabies vaccine cause rabies? i have flu and the last dose of vaccine was 4 days ago, bitten by a animal still alive; given Vaxirab-N vaccine;PCEV
Serum Sickness?: The rabies vaccine cannot cause rabies, but does have side effects like serum sickness. Please discuss your symptoms with the doctor who prescribed the vaccine series. You need to balance the severity of your symptoms against the need to complete the series of rabies vaccines. This is especially true if the animal is still alive and can be observed for signs of rabies OR euthanized for testing. ...Read more

Taken full course of anti rabies vaccine last month again exposure and received 4 doses of anti rabies vaccine exposure again then am i safe rabies?
Depends: on whether you received rabies immune globulin or the vaccine or both, which I assume was the case. Immune globulin offers temporary protection after exposure. The vaccine induces your own antibody production. Once you have received the vaccine, you will no longer be given the immune globulin after exposure but will be given the vaccine after exposure. In other words, each exposure requires vaccine administration but only the first requires immune globulin.http://www.cdc.gov/rabies/medical_care/ ...Read more

Side effects of tamiflu (oseltamivir) used for prevention after exposure to flu virus? Immunized son has flu, given script for 3y/o brother with asthma. Safe?
Is it safe to take BCG, Polio, Measles, Rubella, Meningitis (Quadrivalent) and Hepatitis B vaccines together on the same day?
Contraversial: Not clear as to why some children and even adults get a variety of reactions following vaccines. Obviously, there is an increased incidence of autoimmune problems worldwide, but this may or may not reflect increased vaccine use. No evidence that taking all together vrs separately will make any substantial ultimate difference, but personally, I am NOT clear regarding ultimate safety. ...Read more

Over 10 years: The vaccine provides protection for at least 10 years - probably no more than 14 years however. The recommended dose after possible exposure is 4 doses which you have now had. You should be covered. ...Read more
How long after vaccines is my 2 month old in the clear from serious side effects? i read 48 hours but im still nervous. receivee rotavirus, dtap, hib.
Worry if U wish: It is hard to parent & sort through all the misinformation generated by anti-vaccers. The nasty stuff if any will be evident quickly & 48 hours is a good outlier.Rotavirus vaccine virus will be excreted in the poop for weeks, but I don't consider it a side effect.After almost 4 decades in Pediatrics I consider the vaccines we now have and their safety as the most important advance for our kids. ...Read more
Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect ...Read more
